Far-left Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez posted a video on social media Friday claiming President Trump is “scared” because most Americans prefer her “socialist” proposals.
“I think he’s scared… It shows that we’ve gotten under his skin. He sees that everything is closing in on him. He knows that he’s losing the battle of public opinion when it comes to the actual substantive proposals that we’re advancing to the public,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“He sees 60% of Americans believe in a 70% marginal tax rate in incomes over $10 million… He has no vision for the country,” she adds; referencing Trump’s address to both Houses of Congress.

Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her ‘Concentration Camp’ comments Thursday; telling reporters the Republican Party is running a “torture project” along the US-Mexico border.

“How do you respond to Republicans who are talking about physical barriers being part of any package that deals with the actual crisis in terms of the traffic coming across?” asked a reporter from the Intercept.
“If they want to do that, that’s fine… but they should not be using a humanitarian crisis as a bargaining chip to make sure they pursue their little torture project,” fired-back Ocasio-Cortez.
Yad Vashem, the official Israel Holocaust Center in Jerusalem responded this week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ recent comments; urging the far-left lawmaker to “learn” about concentration camps.
“@AOC Concentration camps assured a slave labor supply to help in the Nazi war effort, even as the brutality of life inside the camps helped assure the ultimate goal of ‘extermination through labor.’ Learn about concentration camps,” posted Yad Vashem.

SOCIALISM USA! AOC Says Capitalism ‘Not Sustainable’ Because of the ‘Environmental Costs’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blasted the American economic model during a speech in Texas over the weekend; saying “capitalism” was “not redeemable” because it places “profit” over the “human and environmental cost.”
Here's where @AOC says capitalism is "irredeemable."

“The tough part about this, about like, is capitalism redeemable? For me, when I think about what those definitions are, capitalism isn’t, to me, it’s an ideology of capital. The most important thing is the concentration of capital,” claimed Cortez.
“It means that we seek and prioritize profit […] above all else. We seek it at any human and environmental cost. That is what that means. To me, that ideology is not sustainable and cannot be redeemed,” she added.
SOCIALISM USA! AOC Says Right to ‘Have a Home’ Trumps Americans’ ‘Privilege to Earn a Profit’
Far-left legislator Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her progressive housing policies this week; telling a crowd in the Bronx that their right to affordable housing is more important than others’ “privilege to earn a profit.”
“What are we doing to make sure housing is being legislated as a human right?” Ocasio-Cortez asked during a town hall in New York City. “It means our access and our ability and our guarantee to having a home comes before someone else’s privilege to earn a profit.”

Controversial Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez raised eyebrows throughout the Big Apple again this week; bizarrely suggesting all NYC public housing units should resemble her new “luxury” apartment in Washington, DC.
“I move into this building, and it’s marketed as a ‘luxury’ building in D.C.,” she said. “It’s an efficient building, it’s clean, it has public space, it has a rooftop garden—y’all watching my Instagram—it has clean air, it has clean water. And I think about this and I’m like, ‘Hm, this is what a luxury building is like,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“I just toured an affordable housing unit yesterday in Queens. This was one of the first developments of its kind… It’s a phenomenal building,” she added.
“I go in and I do a tour with one of these seniors. She opens the door, and I open it, and it looks just like my luxury apartment. What that shows me is that what we have been taught, is a luxury, should not be a luxury,” concluded AOC.
Last month, the left-wing lawmaker made national headlines after posting a bizarre video where she discovers her apartment’s “terrifying” garbage disposal.

“I am told this is a garbage disposal. I’ve never seen a garbage disposal, I’ve never had one in any place I’ve ever lived. It is terrifying, I don’t know what to use it for, or what its purpose is. Like, food scraps? Is this environmentally sound? I don’t know,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
